responsible for his education and other welfare.

Doctor to remove her womb during a surgery, thereby rendering her barren.

“My lord, Musiliu has systematically rendered me barren, henceforth, because I can no longer.

conceive due to the removal of my womb during a caesarean surgery when I was trying to deliver
my first child.

“Assuming I wasn’t okay in the hospital, shouldn’t he have informed any of my relatives that for me
to have a safe delivery, my womb must be removed?

“It is not until recently that Musiliu wanted to be having sexual intercourse with me that he directed
me to go for family planning.

“Then, medical personnel told me that I no longer have womb.
“Worst still, Musiliu is a drunkard and insensitive in all aspect of life,” Kafilat explained.

However, Musiliu, who opposed the divorce suit, did not deny the allegation leveled against him,

but pleaded with the court to help keep his relationship with Kafilat.

“My lord, it is true that her womb was removed but the Doctor informed me that her womb had

already been damaged and that the only option remaining was total removal for her wellbeing.

“The Doctor also advised me not to let her know until over a year when she could bear the pain,” he

Kafilat and Musiliu lived at Ologuneru area of Ibadan.
